I installed through my godaddy hosting. All of the files are on the server and all of the files are Inheirited Writeable. So I don't know what to do next.  Also, when I go to the page I get a crazy message I'm posting below.  I do not know how to access my account to write a blog. Any advice would be helpful!

Did you install BE yourself?  Or did you use GoDaddy's auto-installer option?

It looks like you have it setup to store data in a SQL database.  If you setup BE yourself, did you run the SQL script to create the tables and populate them with some initial data?

In the setup\SQLServer folder, there's a script to run that will get the DB setup.  The name of the file is MSSQLSetup1.5.0.0.sql.

I just did this myself yesterday and got it working pretty quickly, here is how I did it.

  1. Go to your hosting account manager in GoDaddy.
  2. Click on the Content tab
  3. Select Hosting Connections Icon
  4. Click the Blogs button on the left
  5. Select BlogEngine and install to your site
  6. Wait for GoDaddy to install to your site (10-15 minutes it took)
  7. Synchronize your site with your local copy on your computer
  8. Change the Default folder name from BlogEngine to whatever your Blog is titled
  9. Synchronize again
  10. Type in your browser the address new blog folder name
  11. this should bring you to the default home page of your blog.

I think that should do it, also make sure you are running ASP.NET on your shared hosting account and not PHP

Hope this helps
